Hi everyone, When I hit 30yrs. in General Motors, I thought I need a new toy. What better toy than a GM Icon. I allways like the C-3s and i did not have a big buget to play with, It took awhile to talk my wife into it, till she seen the car I showed in the driveway,[ YOU BOUGHT THAT,DIDN'T YOU!] She did like it, and told me after. The car had one owner,and took very good care her, I have the bill of sale from new.36000 miles showing, 59000 kms. Canadian. Interior and engine is mint, Body and paint looks like it came off show room floor. Just for fun I took the car to a local car show a week after a bought the car, There was over 400 entries , and brought home a trophy in Best of Class-80-89. Now the wife likes the car a little better. Spring is near and I got the itch. :cool Joe.

:w Joe,

Welcome to the family :upthumbs

Please take a couple minutes and Register your 1981 at our L81 VetteRegistry Data Base.

Sounds like a fantastic find and with the documentation provided, it just is a FANTASTIC FIND ;) ... Enjoy the :Steer and what all CAC and the Registry have to offer ;)

'bout time!

Welcome aboard! :w

My wife wasn't too keen on our first vette either ("Why would you need something like that...?") but after some caravan events, as well as just everyday rides, she admits she loves the corvette experience. It really is an American icon. Thanks for your years at GM to help make it happen.
